For Sale Nauticam RX100 IV

09 October 2016 - 10:42 AM

Mint condition Nauticam housing comes boxed with all parts: battery for vacuum system, two flash cover plugs, set of allen keys, o’ring remover, spare o’ring.

I bought this last year however it has done a handful of dives as I had to reduce my trips to the  essential and there is no point keeping this in the cupboard any longer.

Price £684 shipping insured next day to UK mainland £11 = £695

Inquiry for other EU shipping costs

No shipping outside EU sorry too much pain with customs etc



Filters for the Sony RX100 Mark IV

Also on the new version custom white balance is shocking however filters exist


I have covered a few in this article and video




First 4K Underwater attempt Sony RX100 Mark IV

13 March 2016 - 01:22 AM

My trip to Puerto Galera was mostly focused on stills however I did do three dives to try the RX100.
Conditions were poor with low visibility and surge however looks like the little camera can do the job
The clip looks much better at home in H265 however youtube only accepts H264 and the 45mbps clip gets trimmed down to 18 mbps which is less than half
Anyway this is it

Interesting behaviour from a coconut octopus around 2:40

Photos from my Purto Galera trip Feb 2016

I was at Fishermens Cove that I warmly recommend


Conditions shocking vis 3 meters and rain for most of the times, regardless some interesting encounters

Coconut 'mimic' octopus

05 March 2016 - 07:23 PM

I have come across a coconut octopus that lacking any shells started walking on two 'legs' after creating a shape that looked like a shell. As if it was mimicking having the coconut. I had not seen this behaviour before I wonder if anyone has? I will post the video clip once I get decent connection
This was in Puerto Galera Giant Clam dive site
